Year 1 Spring 1 2021

We have been so impressed with the way the children have adapted to learning online for this term. We completed our topic of ‘Weather Experts’ during Spring 1 looking at different types of weather, keeping a weather diary and thinking about how different weathers impact on us such as the clothes we wear and the activities we do.

We were very lucky to have a video especially made for us by the meteorologist and weather presenter Mr Bell. He explained to the children all about how the weather is measured and forecasting weather. He gave us a tour of the studio at BBC Look East where he sometimes presents the weather from live on TV and we even had a special mention on the weather forecast the next day!

The children also had a Padlet with lots of exciting videos and experiments about the weather made for us from Mad Science. We found out how rainbows are made by water bending the light and about lighting and electric storms.
